Great Scotch Ale. Really enjoy drinking locally made beer and this is one of the best Scotch Ale's in Alabama. Avondale does not disappoint.

Had this at the brewery. Also had this mixed with the Battlefield IPA. They call it the "Braveheart". Very fitting. I actually preferred the combination of the two.

A: Medium cooper to dark color.
S: Roasted malt aroma.
T: Caramel and Roasted touches. Strong but not over bearing.

O: Very drinkable Scottish Ale. Not bad.

Tap at brewery. Pours dark black with frothy white head. Aroma of chocolate and malts. Tastes of chocolate, malts, very slight vanilla. Light bodied. Pretty good

A - This beer has a medium to darker brown appearance as I would've expected for this style. The creamy light colored head has good retention.

S - Roasted malt dominates with hints of peat smoke. This might have something to do with Scottish yeast strain as the guy I asked said they don't use any smoked malts.

T - Good caramel and roasted qualities balanced with subtle hop flavors. Just a tad of smoke at the finish but quickly fades and finishes clean. (This beer is a malt bomb!)

M - Smooth and creamy as one might hope for in any kind of Scottish beer. Really enjoyed this rich but sessionable brew.

O - Would drink this beer often as the weather gets colder or any time I am craving a malty treat (or two) at the end of the day.
